How to Transfer Contacts from Blackberry to Samsung Galaxy/Note

Mar. . Posted by to Android Topic

Although Blackberry is no longer glorious before, it still has a large use base on the market. With the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S5 this month, there will be a lot of people like me, who are intended to sell their old Blackberry device to purchase the new one. This is pretty common in digital life as new devices and features are steadily introduced at a monthly basis. Surprisingly, prices are almost the same, which is a strong signal to encourage users to buy the new models from mobile phone manufactures.

When you switch from one Blackberry device to a Samsung powered device, the first thing is to backup your precious data stored on the old device. Then the next step is to transfer the content to new device and transferring contacts is always on the first priority. You can type the contacts manually on your new phone, but this is really inefficient if the number of contacts is not that small. However, with the help of certain software, all of the transfer can be done automatically in a few minutes. It takes all of the control of the details and only needs a few clicks to complete the process.

To be frankly, Blackberry to Samsung Transfer is the best one I have used before.
